Okay.

So I'm really crazy busy and have a tendency to miss social stuff, and I just found out about this.
I've read about a dozen articles and all of them seem to make the GamerGate thing sound like it's pretty much the worst.

If anyone can point me to any resource that talks about it favorably, I'm totally game.

But what I DO know really bothers me.

Like how the thing started around slander and abuse.
And how it led to volatile harassment campaigns and death threats that drove several women to go into hiding or quit their jobs.
Or how Anita Sarkeesian had to cancel her college speaking even because someone was specifically targeting feminists and threatening to set off bombs and enact a school massacre.
And how what the movement seems to be claiming:  the demand for journalism transparency and ethical behavior... seems to completely ignore big money and big biz and instead seeks out and targets indie developers and, specifically, women and minorities.

And I get that every group has it's bad eggs.
I do.

But this...
This is outrageous.   And I fail to see how the one side is an equal victim in the circumstances.
I just don't hear, I can't find, any information about the kinds of equal grievances committed on the side of Women, or LGBT, or Minority advocates.

I just...
I don't get this at all.

Here are some factoids. Enjoy!
1.) I'm a girl. I'm also transgender.
2.) If you want to better understand that and how to treat me, check out this article www.wikihow.com/Respect-a-Tran….
3.) I do a lot of bondage art. I'm also a feminist. Consent is at the core of healthy sex play and there are healthy ways to be both interested in power exchange and a supporter of gender equality.
4.) I'm spiritual, but not religious..
5.) If you have any questions, feel free to note me. Just be considerate.

You think so?   I went through the trouble of getting it legally changed and now I'm wondering if I shouldn't have gone with Noel instead ^^;

I'd say wear Noa with pride.

But having Christmas as a name would've been bitchin'.

Christmas Page.

Plus you'd share the same name with that cute blonde in BlazBlue.

Incredible galleries and FANTASTIC Journal above. Wow; it is so important to be self-expressed - because I work with kinky women ALL THE TIME, none of what you said surprises me (though I hadn't anticipated that you were TG) but I was really happy to see it in type and out front. Just put a Watch on you -- may inquire about a Commission in the near future. I have a not-yet-launched website project that has a whole artwork/commission/collaboration side to it. I didn't notice -- do you write (fictions, narrative captions) as well?

(Coughs) Should probably have added more context:

Went out as myself - truly - for the first time ever, in public... and as a saleswoman at that! And people didn't treat me oddly or negatively!
